Jordan Campbell: The Thorns We Walk Upon

Samburu Handicap Education and Rehabilitation Program

Jordan Campbell’s series stood out among a few hundred entries to a competition I judged earlier this year.

“‘The Thorns We Walk Upon’ is a social documentary, which gives a glimpse into daily life at the Samburu Handicap Education and Rehabilitation Program, an NGO in Maralal, Kenya. Grace Senia, a teacher in the local community, established SHERP in 2001. Over the years, various international donors have helped build SHERP’s infrastructure, however despite the available facilities SHERP’s needs continue to outweigh available resources. Water, food, staff, and full time management are never present in unison, creating a challenging and complicated environment for the kids.” – Jordan Campbell
